Android Wear devices are incoming, with prices as low as $199

Google is betting big on Android Wear-powered devices, and the first two smartwatches to uses the scaled-down mobile operating system are now available for pre-orders.
First up is the LG G Watch, which was first announced alongside Android Wear.
